“Come here to experience an encounter with nature in all its glory. Named after one of India’s trees, the Mahua or butter tree, the Mahua Kothi Lodge spreads across 40 acres of lush forest. Here you’ll find twelve luxury suites, or ‘Kutiyas’ and an authentic homestead ‘Kothi’. The food is a highlight in this region. Dinner is best served with a meal under a Mahua Tree, lit up with lanterns.”
Complimentary bottle of wine
This charming lodge is nestled adjacent to the scenic Bandhavgarh National Park, the renowned Tiger reserve of Madhya Pradesh, and offers a unique safari experience close to the magnificent wildlife which roams the huge reserve.
Each of the 12 jungle-style private huts are decorated in the traditional style of Central India with tapered mud walls meticulously finished in lime and earth washes. Open rafters and private courtyards complete the rustic chic feel.
Sit on the shaded veranda overlooking the grassland where monkeys and brightly colored birds are frequent visitors. The dining area has a cosy fireplace to keep guests warm during chilly evenings and serves fresh produce, much of which is handpicked from the gardens by guests and staff alike.
Those hoping to catch a glimpse of the magnificent tigers in their natural habitat are escorted by expert trackers in private 4-wheel drive jeeps deep into the thick forests and grasslands.
